Icons and what do they mean?

Hello All!

I have know idea what this icon means on my blackberry storm 9530. I know this isn't the scale so keep the laughter to a minimum.lol . The symbol or icon looks like this sorta" o_o" . but the underscore is connected to both of the o's. it sits in the middle of the screen at the top. any help would be appreciated. i also have a other issue...... my ringer for my phone sometimes doesn't work...its set to "loud". but when i receive calls and texts it only vibrates....so annoying having to check your phone every five minutes just to see if you missed anything.

Any feedback would be awesome!

Re: Icons and what do they mean?

The icon you are seeing is for checking your voice mail's.   And if you hit the sound button scroll down to set ring tones/alerts.  make sure you have picked a ring tone you want   hit try button,  If ya like it hit BB button and save it.. You can also customize your own ring tone/alert profiles that would best fit your needs.

Re: Icons and what do they mean?

Everyone is correct in that it's an indicator to let you know that you have a voice message.  To retreive it, all you have to do is click the green phone button and hold the #1 down for about 3 seconds and it will ask for your password and then you can see who left you the vm.



Here is a tip/trick: Call your voicemail without having to enter password each time...

1. Click on CALL button (green button)
2. Press BB button (Blackberry button)
3. Scroll and click on OPTIONS
4. Click on VOICE MAIL
5. Under "Password", enter two pauses by pressing BB button twice
6. Now type in your 4 digit password after the pauses.
7. It should look like PP1234 under "Password"

So now, when you press and hold down 1, it will call your voicemail and will pause automatically and enters your password for you.
